The retreat will be a four-day, five-night program of studying and jamming with Broderick and Skolnick at the Full Moon Resort in New York’s Catskill Mountains, from December 26-30, 2011.
The event will include master classes with Skolnick and Broderick, jam sessions, open mic nights and optional private lessons. Attendees are invited to expand their knowledge of lead guitar, rhythm guitar, music history, jazz theory, chord theory, harmony, counterpoint, composition, chord voicings, improvisation (taught by Skolnick), classical fingerstyle technique (taught by Broderick), and of course heavy metal guitar. Guitarists will learn techniques to increase speed and improve tone, while hearing stories about life on the road, getting gear tips and much more.
